This Girl is Awesome



I finally got around to making a new website, one that links to all of my sites. 

Can you believe that name wasn't taken? 

It's still a work in progress. I need to figure out what I want in the portfolio section. Right now it's just a handful of textile designs. 

To get the look I wanted I had to adjust the code quite a bit. 
Here's what the template originally looked like


It had what I wanted, centered Nav bar, social links at the top. But the banner was huge and I wanted to use one of my designs as the background to make the site more personal. 

I am not a web designer but, I had been taking courses on CodeAcademy. And, they totally paid off! I was able to know whether or not to adjust the HTML or CSS. After a few hours, the site totally looked like mine. Best feeling ever. Oh, and I make my sites through Weebly. I highly recommend them. Awesome service.
